I know that while I still have about a month more of summer (thank goodness!), many of you start in early August. (WHAT?! I have always been in states that start in late August/beginning of September.) I wanted to post a “throwback” to some of the ideas that I posted last year.
Also, I have two ideas for new bulletin boards. I have decided to include a word wall this year. I am not sure why I didn’t decide to use it earlier, but after many people mentioned it on #langchat, I am making the jump. I really like this post about word walls. I am going to stick to high frequency words instead of words that relate to a specific topic (i.e.- family, food etc.)
As I mentioned before, I really want to implement this hand project “Why to study a foreign language” to have ready for back to school night. It would be a great first day activity. Are you changing up any of your bulletin boards?
I am OBSESSED with Laura’s idea about Pirate Fun Stations! And it made me finally fulfill my promise of reading TLAP from last year. (Well order it!)
